  George Washington's Tomb
by travelfrosch

On the estate of Mount Vernon, you'll find the tomb of George and Martha Washington. It's interesting to note that this area was mutually considered a neutral location by Union and Confederate troops as the American Civil War raged all around. The tomb was built exactly to the specifications outlined in George Washington's will. Surrounding columns commemorate other members of the Washington family.

Address: PO Box 110, Mount Vernon VA 22121
Directions: At the southern end of the George Washington Parkway. Or take U.S. Route 1 (Washington-Richmond Highway) to Route 235 north. See website for detailed directions. Infrequent Fairfax Connector buses run from the Huntington Metro station.
